What happens when strongmen leaders leave office? Most such situations end up badly. Based on research for her new book Strongmen: Mussolini to the Present (Norton, 2020), Ben-Ghiat will discuss why this is and offer lessons from the exits of strongmen around the world that have relevance for today.

Presented with cosponsorship by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies and the Center for Italian Studies
